As reported in our August 30, 2017, blog item, the “Technology Development Pathways:  Case Studies from the [National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)]” workshop will be held November 1, 2017.  According to NNI, the workshop will showcase application areas where nanotechnology has had commercial impact.  Keynote presentations will highlight the pathways companies have taken to get from research to commercialization.   Panel discussions will focus on specific steps of the development pathway, such as scale up and quality control/measurement systems.  The goal of this workshop is to provide case studies and facilitate the exchange of technical information among private sector participants.  NNI notes that federal government representatives will also participate, enabling attendees to learn of ongoing research activities, agency needs, and funding opportunities.  The workshop is free and open to the public.  Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, but space is limited.
